GRR: East HS Utah
Herriman and East HS will meet in the Utah Youth Rugby school final next week after both won semifinals over the weekend.
These two teams met in the regular season on April 8 with East pulling out a 29-27 victory, so the final promises to be hotly contested.
East HS upset Herriman 29-27 Saturday in Utah Youth Rugby's school league.
It was a good showing from East, who hit Herriman hard and fast and who also kept out of the penalty trouble that has sometimes plagued them.
In the last two weeks East HS in Utah has beaten the defending state D2 champs (Brighton, now in D1), and the defending state single-school champs (Highland).
Herriman and East met Saturday in the Utah Youth Rugby league opener for both teams.
The East HS Leopards are looking ahead to the Utah Youth Rugby playoffs and are in relatively good shape.
East had a ton of trouble with Highland a week and a half ago, falling behind 20-12 and eking out a 27-27 tie.
But the team rebounded this past weekend, beating Las Vegas Rugby Academy 41-5.
